step towards commercial operation
The instrument rating course trains private and commercial pilots to operate in the cloud or under low visibility conditions by referring solely to instruments. Instead of looking out for other aircraft, pilots flying under IFR rely on ATC to prevent them from colliding with other aircraft. It opens up new opportunities and increases flight safety.
Gain in-depth instrument knowledge
You’ll study the airplane’s avionics equipment inside and out, understand how each of your aircraft’s instruments works and learn how to react efficiently in case of instrument failure.
Increase your flying time
It is common for flights to get canceled due to unfavorable weather. However, with IFR's help, which gives you more freedom to fly through clouds, you'll cancel fewer trips. This way, you can keep working on increasing the number of flight hours in your logbook.
One more step towards commercial operation
It is an absolute necessity if you want to fly a commercial jet in the future. An Instrument Rating endorsement and a pilot license are prerequisites for MCC courses and Type Ratings.
You can choose from a single-engine piston (SEP) or multi-engine piston (MEP) Instrument Rating.

Lleida-Alguaire in Spain
You will complete the theoretical part at Lleida-Alguaire Airport, the same spot where our flight school is based.
As the ground school is in close proximity to the flight school, students see the airplanes, flight instructors, maintenance team and all the processes, which is a motivating factor for them.
The ground school is technologically-equipped to fit the evolving needs of modern learners.
Lleida-Alguaire in Spain
Our main flight base is in Spain, Lleida-Alguaire International Airport. It is a convenient location with developed infrastructure and a suitable climate for conducting training year-round.
Our second flight base is in Castellón-Costa Azahar Airport, to which flight training can sometimes be transferred due to changing circumstances.
You will practice on Cessna type of aircraft and FNPT II device.
